Whenever a shiny new gadget is released, developers rush to release updated versions of their apps and toolkits. That’s why one of the strong points about Android is the amazing and hardworking community. Thanks to XDA Forums, we’ve previously also seen many useful apps, and this time we’re talking about Wug’s Nexus Root Toolkit.

Nexus Root Toolkit

If you’ve owned any Nexus device, then you probably know that the bootloader unlock and rooting process is pretty much the same across all Nexus devices. That’s why there are many toolkits available for a Nexus user, but Wug’s Nexus Root Toolkit also supports the new 2013 Nexus 7.

Toolkit functions

As per the developer, the program selectively downloads the files that it needs for your device and always ensures that you have the latest files available. This toolkit can perform various operations like unlocking, rooting, relocking, unrooting and more. Since this is a complete toolkit, you can perform many more actions.

You’ll also need to enable USB Debugging on your device if you’re thinking to try this out. The basic interface will present you options like unlocking, rooting, flashing to the stock factory image, backup and restore. Hit the advanced button and you’ll be able to do stuff like installing APKs, rebooting, rebooting bootloader, change file permissions, flash a stock recovery or kernel, etc.
